Haig, Scotland's oldest surviving Scotch whisky distiller, produces this fifteen-year-old blended whisky. Started in 1893, it is known as much for its taste as it is for its distinguished bottle. The famous, triangular, dimpled container was the first three-sided bottle to be registered as a trademark in the U.S. The nose is of distinct cherries, while on the palate you get a viscosity and gentleness derived from the more than 30 malt and grain whiskies used in the blend. It finishes surprisingly dry with a hint of spice, cherries and earthiness. It's a smart whisky for the novice or connoisseur.
